You’re Only Lonely lyrics

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
When the world is ready to fall
On your little shoulders
And when you’re feelin’ lonely and small
You need somebody there to hold you
You can call out my name when you’re only lonely
Now don’t you ever be ashamed
When you’re only lonely

When you need somebody around
On the nights that try you
Remember I was there when you were a queen
And I’ll be the last one there beside you
So you can call out my name
When you’re only lonely
Now don’t you ever be ashamed
When you’re only lonely
(You’re only lonely)
(You’re only lonely)
(You’re only lonely)

Ooh…when the world is ready to fall
On your little shoulders
And when you’re feelin’ lonely and small
You need somebody there to hold you
So don’t you ever be ashamed
When you’re only lonely
Darling call out my name
When you’re only lonely
(You’re only lonely)
When you’re only lonely
(You’re only lonely)

Oh, it’s no crime
Darlin’ we got lots of time
Whoa (You’re only lonely)
Whoa (You’re only lonely)
No, there’s nothin’ wrong with you
Darlin’, I get lonely too
(You’re only lonely)
(You’re only lonely)

So, if you need me
All you’ve gotta do is call me
Now you’re only lonely
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh my, my, my, my
